Cheap eats in South Beach

Hi. We are heading to SoBe for a few days at the end of the month.. Our plan is to stay at a nice hotel( the National) but eat at cheap or moderate places.. So my question is whats your favorite
restaurants that fit that bill? Breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    From 5-8 Mon to Fri Piola Pizza is doing their whole pizza menu for 7,8, or 9 dollars (based on the time)...an awesome value. They claim they're even doing the deal for to go food also.

      You should know there is miami spice now so even expensive restaurants fit the moderate bill through the end of september.

      Some cheap/moderate places in no particular order:
      My Ceviche -- MUST TRY
      Shake Shack
      El Chalan
      Burger & Beer Joint
      Cha Cha Cha
      Puerto Sagua
      A la Folie
      Jimmy'z Kitchen
      Joes takeaway has some bargains (fried chicken)
      Milos has a $20 lunch
      Bernies La Cafe

        Wow. Thanks for the heads up about "Spice"
        So are there any places on the Spice list that you think I should try?

          Pubbelly has an excellent value meal and is a great restaurant. The Dutch is great in general. Macchialina has their amazing pork chop on their menu - so I would do that too.

            Pubbelly's miami spice is a steal.

            Miss Saigon
            La Ventana (Colombian)
